Speed up Rendering Volume Plot Python

Hi guys, what is the best way to render a 3d Volume plot? Im reading a CSV file (125000 lines), and it takes several seconds to render it.

The quality is really good and it´s just what I need. But I wish I could speed up the rendering time.

I know the time it takes to render depends on the number of surfaces_counts, but even just one surface is taking some time.
